West Wind Productions is currently having a 10th Anniversary SALE (30% off Berlin or Bust and Arthurian Ranges…). How could I resist adding some more Naval Infantry - especially ones with rifles (since a ridiculous number of the ones I already have are armed with sub-machineguns).
I also picked up some Soviet and German Staff (possible targets for Pulpy assassination raid scenarios?) and some early war British (well… SCOTTISH!) Highlanders in kilts (just… don’t ask…).
(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version):
The figures from West Wind Productions.
The whole force (growing larger). Damn, that's pretty much a full platoon I've got there now!? What ever shall I DO with them all!?

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:
Great War Cavalry or The early war Highlanders (in kilts!) or maybe more of the Soviets, since I’m on a roll with them… I have only the staff, a couple scout/snipers, and a handful of NKVD to finish up and the whole force is COMPLETE (until I buy some more…) Oh, and I think there might be a couple tanks that need finishing up. Seriously what more could I possibly ever want to get for the WW2 Soviets!? (Well, probably some more naval infantry – I’d use the Back of Beyond Bolshevik Sailors from Copplestone Castings to add some more rifles to the unit… the uniform and equipment look more or less the same… Of course considering I have a full platoon already, that would probably be a bit silly… WHEN am I EVER going to need THAT MANY Soviet sailors!? (Not that that has ever stopped me from buying and painting stuff before…).
